I loved this book. Rand's grasp of why he individual should be exulted and her explanation of why you are NOT (and should not be) your brother's keeper is timeless. It is a must read for anyone, especially those who think that "socialism" is only about the redistribution of wealth or of tax tables.
My only issues with it are the fact that EVERYONE was SO IN LOVE with the female heroine which seemed a bit indulgent. Also, personally, I would have picked either Francisco or Hank before John any day. And finally, the scene where John Galt addresses the masses in an expansive monologue is REALLY long. You would think that Rand was being paid by the word.
All in all though, this definitely makes my top 10 favorite reads of all time.
